3-D Baseball Art Workshop, July 26 from noon to 4 p.m.

Learning Center, 1st floor

Visitors to the museum on Friday, July 26 will have the opportunity to help create baseball art inspired by the works of three-dimensional artist Charles Fazzino. For more than 30 years, Fazzino's name has been synonymous with bright, whimsical and wonderfully detailed, 3D pop art. His work is exhibited in hundreds of 3D art galleries all over the world. Join artist Diane Stensland for this fun and interactive workshop.

Author’s Series: ‘Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame,’ July 26 at 1 p.m.

Bullpen Theater, 1st floor

Visitors will have the chance to listen to a panel discussion with Hall of Fame staff who contributed to the museum’s new book, “Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame.” Librarian Jim Gates, photographer Milo Stewart Jr., senior director of exhibitions and collections Erik Strohl and director of research Tim Wiles will take part in the round-table event. A book signing will be held following the program. The book, published by Simon and Schuster, allows readers to go behind the scenes to see seldom or never-displayed items from the museum’s collection.

All museum programs during Hall of Fame Weekend are included with museum admission.
